Cost Analysis and Supply Utilization of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 10;2018:7838103. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

University of Vermont Medical Center, Department of Surgery, Burlington, VT, USA.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is one of the highest volume surgeries performed annually. We hypothesized that there is a statistically significant intradepartmental cost variance with supply utilization variability amongst surgeons of different subspecialty. This study sought to describe laparoscopic cholecystectomy cost of care among three subspecialties of surgeons. Read More

The Frequency of Resurgery after Percutaneous Lumbar Surgery Using Dekompressor in a Ten-Year Period.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 9;2018:5286760. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, Nova Clinic Biberach, Eichendorffweg 5, 88400 Biberach, Germany.

To prevent open surgical procedures, minimally invasive techniques, like Dekompressor (PLDD), have been developed. The absence of reherniation is an important factor correlating with clinical success after lumbar surgery. In this retrospective, observational study, the frequency of additional open surgery after PLDD in a long time retrospective was examined. Read More

Strangulated Hernia Can Be a Risk Factor of Seroma following Laparoscopic Transabdominal Preperitoneal Repair.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 26;2018:6528075. Epub 2018 Aug 26.

Department of Surgery, Kurashiki Central Hospital 1-1-1, Miwa, Kurashiki, Okayama 710-8602, Japan.

Purposes: Seroma is a postoperative complication following laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal repair (TAPP) for inguinal hernioplasty. Seroma naturally resolves in most cases, but it can lead to an increased amount of visits to the outpatient clinic and can result in anxiety of the patient. Local inflammation of the inguinal area is etiology of seroma formation. Read More

Interspinous Process Decompression Improves Quality of Life in Patients with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 2;2018:1035954. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Chicago, IL, USA.

Lumbar spinal stenosis has been shown to negatively impact health-related quality of life. Interspinous process decompression (IPD) is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a stand-alone spacer to serve as a joint extension blocker to relieve neural compression in patients with spinal stenosis. Using the 5-year results from an FDA randomized controlled trial of IPD, the quality of life in 189 patients treated with the Superion® spacer was evaluated with the SF-12. Read More

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, 676 N. Saint Clair St., Suite #1350, Chicago, IL 60611, USA.

As the use of minimally invasive spine (MIS) fusion approaches continues to grow, increased scrutiny is being placed on its outcomes and efficacies against traditional open fusion surgeries. While there are many factors that contribute to the success of achieving spinal arthrodesis, selecting the optimal fusion biologic remains a top priority. With an ever-expanding market of bone graft substitutes, it is important to evaluate each of their use as it pertains to MIS techniques. Read More

Microvascular Anastomosis Training in Neurosurgery: A Review.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 28;2018:6130286. Epub 2018 Mar 28.

Department of Neurosurgery Research, Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, 350 West Thomas Road, Phoenix, AZ 85013, USA.

Cerebrovascular diseases are among the most widespread diseases in the world, which largely determine the structure of morbidity and mortality rates. Microvascular anastomosis techniques are important for revascularization surgeries on brachiocephalic and carotid arteries and complex cerebral aneurysms and even during resection of brain tumors that obstruct major cerebral arteries. Training in microvascular surgery became even more difficult with less case exposure and growth of the use of endovascular techniques. Read More

Teach and Playback Training Device for Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Minim Invasive Surg 2018 10;2018:4815761. Epub 2018 Jan 10.

Industrial Engineering, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Edwardsville, IL 62026, USA.

Recent technological progress offers the opportunity to significantly transform conventional open surgical procedures in ways that allow minimally invasive surgery (MIS) to be accomplished by specific operative instruments' entry into the body through key-sized holes rather than large incisions. Although MIS offers an opportunity for less trauma and quicker recovery, thereby reducing length of hospital stay and attendant costs, the complex nature of this procedure makes it difficult to master, not least because of the limited work area and constricted degree of freedom. Accordingly, this research seeks to design a Teach and Playback device that can aid surgical training by key-framing and then reproducing surgical motions. Read More

Prediction of Muscle Fatigue during Minimally Invasive Surgery Using Recurrence Quantification Analysis.

Minim Invasive Surg 2016 24;2016:5624630. Epub 2016 May 24.

Industrial Engineering, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Edwardsville, IL 62026, USA.

Due to its inherent complexity such as limited work volume and degree of freedom, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is ergonomically challenging to surgeons compared to traditional open surgery. Specifically, MIS can expose performing surgeons to excessive ergonomic risks including muscle fatigue that may lead to critical errors in surgical procedures. Therefore, detecting the vulnerable muscles and time-to-fatigue during MIS is of great importance in order to prevent these errors. Read More

The Role of VATS in Lung Cancer Surgery: Current Status and Prospects for Development.

Minim Invasive Surg 2015 29;2015:938430. Epub 2015 Jul 29.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, National Research Institute of Chest Diseases, Warsaw, Poland.

Since the introduction of anatomic lung resection by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) 20 years ago, VATS has experienced major advances in both equipment and technique, introducing a technical challenge in the surgical treatment of both benign and malignant lung disease. The demonstrated safety, decreased morbidity, and equivalent efficacy of this minimally invasive technique have led to the acceptance of VATS as a standard surgical modality for early-stage lung cancer and increasing application to more advanced disease. Formerly there was much debate about the feasibility of the technique in cancer surgery and proper lymph node handling. Read More
